If someone tells you they really need some time without seeing you, it’s usually a sign, lo and behold, that they need some time without seeing you! Who would have thunk it?
Rom-coms have driven all of us crazy, and taught us, for some reason, that ignoring your partner’s request is THE way to be romantic. Showing up at people’s houses unannounced is creepy and should be reserved for, well, creepers and not boyfriends.
Promises are usually made in order to be kept, right? Could you imagine getting mad at someone for NOT breaking a promise they made?
Sure, it can be hard to form a healthy idea of love after a lifetime of watching ludicrous romcoms, where surprising someone at the airport with a flash mob is considered the ultimate proof of love. Still, we think the person who didn't keep the promise is at fault for this fail here.
The Ring of Truth
As a general rule, we don't recommend picking up things you find on the street, but we've all done it at least once as kids. While rings are considered to be one of the most romantic gifts a guy can give to a girl, not just any ring would do.
White plastic rings are not usually popular with the ladies so it's no surprise the object of his affection gave it back.
Just Say No
It can be really nice and validating to know that someone is into you. Guys don't often get that as they are supposedly expected to make the first move.
Why can't women ask men out? Well, they can. But alas, putting yourself out there means risking different types of rejection. Guys know this all too well, you get a yes, but you go on the date and you realize the other person has no interest in you. Next time just use your words and say no.
Just the Tip
When partners don't get each other's sense of humor, that's a major problem. It can lead to very peculiar situations, just as getting a bag full of half-eaten candy corns.
Sure, it was sort of a nice gesture, except for the fact this person could have at least cut the cany instead of eating half of it. It's only reasonable. Still, it's very hard to imagine how anyone can think this was anything but a joke.
